The magazine, which focuses on the business benefits of diversity, identifies companies annually for best practices and achievements in diversity.

Accenture named to DiversityInc's “Top 50 Companies” list

“This distinction is a wonderful tribute to Accenture. We have people from a wide range of cultural, educational and geographical backgrounds – and every one of them brings something valuable and unique to work each day,” said Andre Hughes, Accenture's managing director of Human Capital and Diversity in the United States. “Our corporate success is fueled by personal and team success.”

The “Top 50 Companies” recognition acknowledges Accenture's dedication to creating an inclusive work environment that is rich in diversity, celebrates each individual's uniqueness, and promotes respect, personal achievement and stewardship. The accomplishment is particularly notable because competition was especially fierce this year, with 317 participants, up 100 percent over the last three years and up 24 percent from last year.

The DiversityInc rankings are derived exclusively from a statistical analysis of responses to a 230-question survey, which is divided into four areas: CEO Commitment, Human Capital, Corporate Communications and Supplier Diversity. Although CEO Commitment is the most heavily weighted section, a company must score well in all four areas. Companies also are evaluated within their own industries and employee skill sets. This year, questions were added on CEO Commitment, work/life, mentoring, programs related to Native Americans, people with disabilities and gay/lesbian/bi-sexual/transsexual people.

Accenture has been named as one of DiversityInc's “25 Noteworthy Companies” for the past two years. This is, however, Accenture's first appearance on the magazine's prestigious list of top 50 companies.

“Accenture is passionately committed to cultivating a diverse workforce both because it's the right thing to do, and it's a key element of achieving high performance,” said Armelle Carminati-Rabasse, Accenture's managing director of Human Capital and Diversity globally. “Our company comprises people from a wide range of cultural, educational and geographic backgrounds-people who are able to challenge conventional thought, offer unique perspectives and generate innovative ideas. Our rich diversity is part of what makes our company strong.”
